Guinea-pigging. Frontal lobe downloads. Rogue taxidermy. Hogzilla. What else could you ask of a novel?

The New and Improved Romie Futch is finally here. Go find a copy and start reading.  Or order one online, from your favorite independent bookshop.

Update: An endorsement from Bustle:

Julia Elliott may be a wizard, and I don't throw that term around with abandon. She proved to us with her short story collection, The Wilds, that her prose is like nothing you've ever read: sharp, hilarious, dark, and, expansive all at once. With Romie Futch, a book about a divorced South Carolina taxidermist who is haunted by his ex-wife, and arguably isn't taking the best steps to get his life back on track, Elliott has gone above and beyond with an eye-opening gothic satire that pushes the boundaries of dystopia.

Update Two: From Lit Reactor:

Do you think Flowers For Algernon would have been better if Charlie was a middle-age metal head taxidermist with a Xanax addiction and an unhealthy obsession with his ex-wife?
